.s. scaneagle drone which entered iranian air space over the persian gulf. the very powerful navy chief of the revolutionary guard said iran used jamming systems to bring down the drone which had taken off from usa aircraft carrier in the region and was on a reconnaissance mission gathering data over iran and state tv showed two revolutionary guard commanders expecting what seems to be an impact scaneagle drone in front of a huge map of the persian gulf and hon it written, we will trammell america under our feet. as you said the u.s. denies any drone had gone missing but we had a similar incident last year where iran had jammed and downed a u.s. drone in the same region. the u.s. denied a drone had been down. after a few days they admitted the drone had been downed by the iranians and asked for it back. the iranians wouldn't give the drone back, but they said that they would make a model of it and send it to the united states. they put that model for sale in iran which we managed to get a copy of, to much fanfare. this was on sale all over iran last year. we might see another copy of it
. >> iran, the u.s. drone they claim they shot down. do you have information on that? the navy said it's not theirs, perhaps a cia drone. i don't know. anything that you can tell us about that? >> i can tell you we have no evidence that the iranian claims you cite are true. i'd refer you to the pentagon's comments this morning about the type of uav, but, again, no evidence that the claims are true. >> how do you view, though, the fact they have shot some drone -- >> again, we have no evidence to hear the claims are true. i'm not going to comment on something about which we have no evidence in its truthfulness. yes? >> jay, thanks. i want to go back to what the president asked in the interview with bloomberg. during the negotiations with speaker boehner, a year ago, he was willing to consider increasing the eligibility age for medicare recipients and slowing benefits for entitlements, and he said he was willing to look at anything that strengthens our system. can you clarify, are those prams that could strengthen the system, is that what he was signaling? >> i will say a couple things t
